Adina Morozan

Research Engineer 

Adina received her PhD degree from the University of Bucharest in 2007 on the topic of novel functional materials for fuel cells. After a two-years postdoctoral project on Enzymes and organometallic catalysts in hydrogen fuel cells at the Laboratory of Chemistry of Surfaces and Interfaces at CEA Saclay, she spent two years in the Aggregates, Interfaces and Materials for Energy team at ICGM in Montpellier. Her research activity has been focused on synthesis, characterization and degradation studies of non-precious metal catalysts for the oxygen reduction reaction in a fuel cell environment. She then moved to Grenoble to join the group of Dr. Vincent Artero in January 2014. She is working on projects related to development of photocatode for H2 production and electrochemical processes evaluation by electrochemistry techniques.
